如何医治法国的无可救药

当骚乱席卷法国城市时,其他国家对法国的评价十分严厉。各国使馆向旅游者和居住在法国的本国公民发出了警告;电视新闻节目连续数小时播放汽车燃烧的画面。其他国家政府由于担心这一问题会波及到本国而看起来已经在同这一问题拉开距离。

但是,欧洲各国的市长们则对此作出了更为温和的反应,并同他们深受骚乱之苦的法国同行们团结一致。他们知道,只要存在社会不平等的问题,包括边缘化和受到排挤的年轻人,他们的城市也有可能遭受城市暴力袭击。

而法国的情况的特殊性在于,骚乱针对的是国家,更为准确地说是针对警察。英国最近的骚乱发生在种族之间,与此不同,在法国的对抗中,骚乱参与者与警察针锋相对。实际上,尽管不同种族背景的年轻人参与了骚乱,这些骚乱中并没有特别的宗教或种族特征。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
